Driving License Long AWOL

I had my license much later than my younger sister, mainly because of the different make of cars they use in the on-the-road test. (I learned driving a Nissan, but got a Proton Waja on my test). So I failed my first on-the-road test and aced at it a couple of years later, when I really had to get a license, or be cursed-to-walk-forever by my parents.

Anyway... this is rather embarrassing... I just found out last week that I've been zooming around the country WITHOUT a driving license for so long! Oh don't get me wrong, I am LEGALLY accepted to drive by the Department of Transport, my name and stuff they got keyed in the database. The problem was, I ACCIDENTALLY took my license slip (a pink card telling when my license is due) as the real thing, and put the REAL license (with my address, pic etc) elsewhere.

And it does not help if I only renew my license once in three years...

So that's why the cop asked me where my license was, when I showed him the pink slip... 

But all is remedied now. I got my new license yesterday (complete with an ugly recent mugshot of me) and made for it to be renewed next year. I might forget to renew it in three years...

Malice; I never do hit-and-runs, but I might try it for size :)
